Faneuil Hall sits in a very busy and touristy area and is on the Freedom Trail. The building itself is full of history from the famous people who have spoken there. Originally it was constructed before the Revolution but what you see today was reconstructed...More

The marketplace is of interesting architecture. There is a lot of hustle and bustle going on with the crowds of people visiting. The place is full of shops offering a wide variety of cheesy souvenirs. Reminded us of a smaller version of the Covent Garden...More

Go there just to say you went but its nothing special. The shops are all cheap stands with cheesy tourist gifts but the buildings are nice and there is great food next door.

While taking a day tour of Boston, our guide dropped us here for lunch. The choices were endless. You walk through a long corridor of restaurants. There is so much, it is hard to choose. This is a great place for groups or large families...More

If you are looking for great variety, and a quick but good meal, go to Quincy Market. Many small food stands serving all kinds of seafood ( clam chowder, lobster pie, swordfish kebabs, Mediterranean foods, pizza, chinese foods, delicious fruit drinks, and more) with plenty...More

I had hoped that one of the most historic areas in Boston would have more emphasis on history, but it is just a glorified shopping mall, specializing in tourist trinkets rather than quality shops. I do recommend it as a cheap place to eat, at...More

The bright point of Fanueil Hall Marketplace is that there was always something to see and something going on. The food here was nothing spectacular. I ate at Cheers and Wagamama and both places were quite disappointing. I had Wagamama in London and expected the...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
